frost creeps into every cranny

I am very happy to say that Stargazing is a finalist in the Quilts section of the Summer Sewing Contest! All the finalists are on display at Ellison Lane Quilts; you can vote there for your favourite in each of the four categories. I’m amazed to see little Stargazing among all those pretty works of art.

Stargazing now lives in its island home on the other side of the Tasman, where its new keeper has reported that she is very happy with its colours.

And now to a finish-photo…

The top to winter sunrise is all sewn together. So many points to meet up…most of them are precise 😉
Pieced winter sunrise

Now to decide how to quilt it!

I have also it seems been keeping winter in my thoughts in fabric acquisitions.
lovely acquisitions

nom nom nom delightful Echo, Half Moon Modern, Modernology, and Dear Stella. They weren’t selected to go all together, but now that I see them…some solids and that might be quite pretty. Kinda coordinates with the button, hey?

Another distinctly less wintery quilt top is also done, but needs one more strip of edging. It will appear later in the week.
